Well – it’s so hysterical – a friend of mine is a friend of theirs and it’s hard to believe such gr8 things can happen these days!! Wish Amazon can do it too…

Its so hard to please anyone

so hard to please anyone these days!!! It’s so hard to please anyone these days!!! Here is a partial list of my clients …. I couldn’t even get them one date, and that is why I am finally quitting and going into the pickle business. Avraham Avinu: How can you recommend him to my daughter? Wasn’t he involved in a family feud with his father over some idols? Then he left home without a GPS or a viable business plan! Yitzchak Avinu: His brother is an Arab terrorist!!! Rivka Imeinu: Sorry, she seems nice but did you hear about her… Read more »

Love that story. It should be publicized widely, as an example for today’s crazy world that the Rebbe had his priorities straight in terms of what makes a good shidduch.

Like comment 39. It should be a lesson for everyone.
We should hear many Chasunahs

This is a beautiful a story but I do have to question, why did she assume there was no one named Zevi Goldin, what did she think that the UPS driver was just making something up?

great story!!
May 7, 2014 2:18 pm

great young match may they build a binyan adei ad al yesodei hatorah vihamitzvah

Beautiful story!
UPS = United Parcel Shadchonim!

how he knew
May 7, 2014 1:43 pm

Delivery people, and others in manual labor, have a good sense of who the good people are. They are the ones who notice and say hello and treat everyone with dignity, even if they’re “just” a delivery man.
Lesson: Treat everyone with respect, and you might just get a shidduch out of it!
There is a story about a shoichet saved from death in Uruguay because he always said hello to the hotel concierge. Perhaps somoene can share it.

While UPS concentrates on first-timers, rival Fed-Ex serves ex-spouses.

You did it!

shadchones gelt !
May 7, 2014 12:29 pm

stop making fun of shadchones gelt .it is very important for the future of the young couple . there is no different between using tefilin that hasn’t been paid to working with a shadchan no matter who he or she is with out paying them .and paying according to today’s standard .mazal tov to the chosen and kalla

I hope he gets a free ride in the UPS Van!!!

May 7, 2014 10:10 am

This compels me to mention another point. Many years ago, a young woman from an elite “chabad” family was going out with a bochur who was a baal Teshuva and became serious about him. The devastated father ran to the Rebbe for advice, how could his “worthy” and “choshuve” daughter marry someone who is a baal Teshuva?! and the Rebbe’s response was; “and by me the question is is she worthy of him?!!!!”

UPS should know about it for their internal PR.

May 7, 2014 4:24 am

What can brown do for you?

Hashem is always looking after us
May 7, 2014 3:48 am

But we just need to be constantly aware of it and realize it. And there are all sorts of Shluchim that Hashem sends our way for good things. Just keep yours eyes open for good things to happen and Hashem will do the rest 🙂

great story- very encouraging
May 7, 2014 3:32 am

and shows us that shluchim rabim laMakom! the yeshua can truly come from anywhere and anyone. mazal tov to the young couple

May 7, 2014 3:01 am

The leadership at UPS is definitely good. The UPS guys actually seem to care whether you get your package or not, unlike some other companies and their robotic, inflexible habits.
This guy took it to another level:-)

Answer to #1
May 6, 2014 11:49 pm

did they show their appreciation in any other way besides saying: “thank you” or did the uncle get all of the gelt?

I love Terry
May 6, 2014 11:49 pm

He was our UPS man when I was in CH… Great guy!

Shidduch crisis no more!

Be open let HaShem come in...
May 6, 2014 9:53 pm

So happy for them.. Am happy they took the simple route .. People have become way too complicated in the shidduch scene .. Requiring so much to match exactly and so much research .. Let good people just meet each other and let us stop making our own crisis
So proud of the parents that were not getting in Hashems messengers way …
